Blown-in Insulation Cuts Heat Loss in Attics of Older Homes - Boston, Worcester, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 01, 2014

The common places at home where heat is usually lost are at the attic floor, roof, and walls, making them a great target for additional insulation. Adding home insulation, particularly in the attic of older homes, is important if you want to cut down on heat loss.

Warm air that is needed in winter can leak from a multitude of areas in an old house. Primarily, heat loss happens through the top of the house where it rises and escape through a roof that has insufficient insulation. In return, cold air is allowed to creep in making your house too cold, specifically when there is a drastic drop in temperature. Without adequate attic insulation not only will you suffer from chilly nights but also from the high energy expense resulting from your efforts to keep your living area comfortable during extremely cold weather conditions.

Keeping older houses warm can be tricky. Older materials which were originally used for insulation may have deteriorated over time, and the energy efficiency of more modern materials has improved dramatically. Today, there are energy-saving and cost-effective options to control the heat flow, such as blown-in insulation in Boston, MA. This can be the least invasive and most efficient method of adding insulation in your old home.
